Welcome to Omni Prize for the Arts

Omni Prize is the Midwest’s premier juried art festival showcasing visual artists, theatre, film and music in Ottawa, Illinois (just minutes from Starved Rock State Park). For 3 days, visitors and residents will be able to stroll the streets of Ottawa and see with their own eyes why art is so important! Art will come to life on display on the streets, in restaurants, shops, parks, riverfront and more. Music will be in the air and artists will make art jump in the streets and off the pages as never seen before. Open to the Public with FREE admission. Cash prizes and recognition will be awarded to winning artists from an esteemed jury and from public votes! Any proceeds from the event will go to benefit art in education in the local area.
